The very first time you read the books, what one moment captured you the most? Mine is easy. It's when Covenant used the power of the ring to give caamora to the dead giants. I remember actually crying at this point, a sob bursting out of me to my surprise - the first time a book truly made me cry.

Honorable mention for when Covenant in the second chronicles visited the ghosts of his friends from the first chronicles.

If this is your favorite moment (you have a lot of company there), please read the dissection thread for the chapter. The blue text is a link.

The initial post is by the incomparable Furls Fire. If her writing touches you, click the blue flame icon in my signature, read there, then go to The Hall of Gifts and follow links at the top of that forum, should you be so moved to do so.

Old hands, please excuse my blatant leading of the new member to some of the jewels of the Watch... Hearts

No matter how many times I read that section, I'm reduced to tears. That chapter to me is unparalleled in terms of emotional impact, and goes to show the brilliance of Mr. Donaldson.

Hile Troy's vision of the Warward and Fleshharrower's armies from Kevin's Watch is always stunning!

He even lost his sunglasses when he tried to jump! Laughing

I wish I could copy and paste it on here... its hard to explain cuz all the emotions the book was throwing at my eyes...

It's in the last book of the first chronicles.. Foamfollower, Tommy, and Lena are in a cave thing and Lena goin on about some junk and Tommy is trying to get up in her head and foamfollower is all sad up in the corner.

It would be better if you went and found the passage... maybe il go find the page just incase somehow someone didn't fully understand whatever the hell I wrote up there. be right back..

For me, as others, the caamora for the dead giants was a huge scene.

Another great moment for me was the Celebration of Spring, because it began to show what was really at stake in this world. It showed what beauty and magic existed in the Land and how it was threatened.

There was a lot of memorable moments but I remember the one that made me say aloud 'WTF!' was when it was revealed what Amok really was. 2nd runner up was the Ranyhyn/Manhome scene from LFB.

When TC finds the first Aliantha bush under the Sunbane (and persuades Sunder to eat the treasure berries) - a reminder the Land's ability to endure under Lord Foul's malice and that Earthpower can never be truly driven away. Also provides TC with hope that things can go back to the way they were before the Clave.

The part when Mhoram is trying to summon Thomas Covenant back to The Land but Covenant refuses by saying he has to save the little girl first.

There is the scene in TPTP where the Ranyhyn in the Ramen covert rear in homage to Covenant in spite of being terribly injured.

The three major caamoras stick with me the most. Foamfollower's caamora in Hotash Slay, the caamora Covenant gifts to the souls of the Giants at the Grieve, and Covenant's own caamora in the Banefire. Just mind blowing and life affirming, all of them.

I'm pretty much a sucker for vivid action and I read the 1st Chrons when I was about 15 so the parts that caught my attention back then were The Battle Of Soaring Woodhelven and Lord Mhoram's Victory. Of course most of the Illearth War was just plain fascinating. I've re read the 1st and 2nd Chrons multiple times and I have come to appreciate the more emotional cues that have been referenced above.

"Lord Mhoram's Victory"...the high point of the entire Chronicles, for me.
